Andro and Sheehan on Michael Young

Two different pieces on Michael Young that have gone up this afternoon, that I wanted to bring to folks' attention...

First, Joe Sheehan has a column at Sports Illustrated, looking at Michael Young's resurgent 2011 season.

Second, Anthony Andro has a column up at Fox Sports, talking about Michael Young as an MVP candidate.

Both good pieces worth a read (even if I don't necessarily agree with the Michael Young, MVP meme that has popped up the past few days).
